Pastor: Aaron Linville
Dear Millwoods Community Church,
By now, you know that I have accepted the call to be your pastor, so let me share a few things about myself and my family to help us learn more about each other. I was born into the Union Cross Moravian congregation just outside of Winston-Salem, NC. I grew up attending Union Cross and summer camp at Laurel Ridge. My journey to ordained ministry began as a call to attend Moravian Theological Seminary. Before moving to Bethlehem, I attended Lees-McRae College, a small, liberal arts college in the mountains of North Carolina where I earned degrees in both History and Religious Studies. I spent the following few years working towards a Master of Divinity and graduated from Moravian Theological Seminary in May of 2013.
That fall, Amy and I were married after dating for 5 years. Shortly after, I began working at New Philadelphia Moravian Church as their Pastoral Intern. I also enjoyed volunteering with the Anthony’s Plot community as they served their neighborhood and the homeless community in Winston-Salem. I began serving as pastor to Rural Hall Moravian on November 2, 2014. Amy and I are the happy parents of two cats, Erdmuthe and Komensky, and one dog, Goose (feel free to ask about their names). Amy recently graduated with her Master of Library and Information Sciences, and enjoys crocheting and all things that deal with words and books. I enjoy vegetable gardening and recently picked up wood turning as a hobby. We both look forward to meeting you on November 4, and serving the Lamb of God with you in the coming years.
Peace, Aaron & Amy Linville

Hello, and welcome to our website. I have been serving at Millwoods Community Church since 2001, wearing numerous hats along the way. Presently I enjoy providing leadership in the areas of music and worship, preaching, congregational care, small groups and the Christian Education Committee, to name a few. My background includes being a professor for 15 years at North American Baptist College in the areas of music and theology of worship. I also enjoy performing professionally with the Edmonton Opera Company and teaching piano and voice at my home studio. I enjoy teaching and encouraging people in their faith as we work together to be living examples of Christ’s love in this community.
